With contributions from artists, theorists and activists, among them David Graeber, Brian Holes and Geert Lovink, Future Publics reflects on the emergence of radically new publics whose origins in moments of social crisis and political uncertainty inspire them to question existing forms of collective organization, decision-making structures and protocols. These future publics recognize that following the collapse of late capital's certitudes, the institutions of political and cultural life cannot continue as usual. Utopian yet pragmatic, insurgent yet self-critical, they resist normalization into restrictive definitions of citizenship, cutting across conventional lines of class, region, ethnicity and ideological affiliation. This reader explores how the imaginative and intellectual labor of these new publics has proposed new speculative forms of belonging and collaboration beyond the ones envisaged within the paradigm of contemporary art.

Merging theoretical models derived from anthropology and from contemporary art discourse, We Roma: A Critical Reader in Contemporary Art looks at the Roma (i.e. Romany, or gypsy) lifestyle and examines its resonances with current civic and artistic concerns. As social and economic injustice extends from the historically marginalized to the “99 percent,” this volume takes ideas from gypsy culture and the pioneering work of anthropologist Alfred Gell to propose alternative modes of existence for the disenfranchised. It contains both old and new writing by artists, theorists and activists of both Roma and non-Roma origin: Albert Atkin, Huub van Baar, Zygmunt Bauman, Delaine & Damian James le Bas, Ethel Brooks, Agnes Daróczi, Tony Gatlif & Cécile Kovacshazy, Ian Hancock, Sanja Ivekovic, Timea Junghaus, Irit Rogoff, Regina Römhild & Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Salman Rushdie and Mike Sell.

The influential Slovenian curator, art critic, writer and theorist Igor Zabel (1958-2005) was largely responsible for putting the Slovenian art scene on the map during the 1990s. As Senior Curator of Ljubljana's Moderna Galerija, he established cultural links between Eastern and Western Europe, developing a unique critical perspective on the ongoing transformation of the post-Communist era. This indispensable volume both develops and creates new contexts for the theories and strategies illustrated by Zabel in his exhibitions, publications, critical writings and European exchange initiatives. It is published collaboratively by the Igor Zabel Association for Culture and Theory in Ljubljana and the Erste Foundation.

In 2007, Aernout Mik represented the Netherlands at the Venice Biennale. Rather than produce a standard catalogue to accompany Mik's acclaimed three-part video installation, curator Maria Hlavajova organized this dense and galvanizing critical reader. Interspersed with provocative black-and-white images from Mik's artworks, Citizens and Subjects looks at the Netherlands as an example of the contemporary western condition at a time when the demands of "national security," the normalization of violence and the maintenance of high levels of fear and anxiety have become part of daily life in the so-called "West." This volume seeks to identify the causes of our current predicament and looks at how our society fails to negotiate the challenges posed by economic globalization, human migration and cross-cultural influence. With contributions by philosophers, social scientists and artists including Marlene Dumas, Aernout Mik, Willem de Rooij and Lawrence Weiner.
Foci gathers together interviews with ten of the most renowned curators working internationally in the field of contemporary art. The interviews are rich with wide-ranging dialogue and cover issues such as the relationship between the exhibit and its location, art as the barometer for the age, the role of architecture, fashion and design in shaping art, the notions of national and gender identity in art, as well as more specific issues concerning personal curatorial styles. Interviews with Kasper Koenig, Rosa Martinez, Hou Hanru, Harald Szeemann, Vasif Kortun, Maria Hlavajova, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Dan Cameron, Yuko Hasegawa and Barbara London give the reader a fascinating insight into the work and thought process of some of the most creative individuals in today's art world.
